A Kitchen Table, Among Other Things

Today, missionary Earl Quick and I built the frame for a table that was planned for the dorm kitchen. I had sketched a design yesterday and we took an an hour or so this afternoon to cut and assemble it.  Without the benefit of a miter saw we had to bevel cut the angles with a circular saw and also taper the legs.  Considering the basic tools, it seemed to turn out well, and when we turned it up to check how it sat, low and behold, it was level without any rocking.  One of the other guys said it was a "miracle."

Note the picture of me and Earl standing inside the frame.
